The hugely popular YouTuber Mr Beast, known for his large-scale videos, apparently made a 100-player game of Among Us, which was previously impossible in the base game.
Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is known for taking everything to the next level, and this ability has earned him a whopping 45 million subscribers on his main channel, with over 7.4 billion views on his videos collectively.
He also has 9.2 million additional subscribers on his gaming channel, where he goes on crazy gaming challenges with his friends, well-known YouTubers and followers, frequenting games such as Minecraft and GTA 5.
Naturally, Jimmy jumped on the latest craze to sweep the internet; Among us. Among Us was released in 2018, but found a new lease of life years later as it rose through the ranks on Twitch.
Currently, the lobby cannot hold more than ten people. However, many considered how amazing it would be to have more players in a single game, and an animation made by Pixel Kingdom describing what it would be like to have 100 players in the game garnered an insane 85 million views on YouTube, so clearly the feature is in high demand.
If there’s anyone to actually make it happen, it’s Mr. Beast. He teased a 100-player lobby on Twitter, announcing the next video on Friday, October 16, but was greeted with slight skepticism.
It seems that despite many doubts, Mr. Beast managed to pull off the seemingly impossible feat, as the final video showed a fully functioning lobby of 100 players among us. There are a few minor differences from the original game, but the resemblance is absolutely odd.
This video saw various members of Mr. Beast’s team attempt to kill all 100 players in the lobby, without the other players finding out which usernames they were going to, establishing them as the impostor.
While it is not known exactly how he achieved the feat, many have speculated that Mr. Beast and his team built their own version of Among Us from scratch, which allows for a lobby with a lot more players than is possible in the actual game, judging by the minor differences.
It’s a custom game he built himself I guess

At the end of the video, Jimmy asked fans to “comment on what you want us to do next in Among Us” like “we can do anything,” teasing even crazier content related to the hugely popular game later.
Mr. Beast’s video managed to garner over 6.5 million video views in less than 24 hours of posting, with people thrilled to see the results of this ambitious gaming video.
